i broke my ankle 4 weeks ago and have been told by the fracture clinic to take my surgical boot off and start walking on it. I have done so but it is painful and swells up but I can do it. My main worry is that if the bone has not healed properly, am i doing it more harm than good? I had an xray 2 weeks ago and it was healing as expected. I am 60 years old. My question is will it take longer to heal if I keep putting weight on it if it has not fully knitted together or could it not heal properly. Thanks in advance.
